Rangeway Primary School (5388)

School Overview

At Rangeway Primary School our motto is 'Working Together'. We apply this motto within the school but we also promote working together with families and cares in the wider school community.

We are located in the city of Geraldton and have 12 classes. Our school is very inclusive, and we have strong beliefs in valuing and sharing Aboriginal culture and language within our school and network.

Everyone in our school, from the Principal to the school officer in the front office, takes on this responsibility by building relationships with children and their families from their very first visit to our school.

We support students to build strong social skills and have high expectations for their social-emotional wellbeing and academic goals. We have a dedicated team of classroom teachers, allied professionals, and a strong team of Aboriginal Education Officers.

Our school community has a strong emphasis on sport, our students in year 4-6 are able to be part of our Rangeway Sports Academy, which requires Sports Academy students to demonstrate pride in their work, feeling confident being themselves and demonstrate exemplary behaviour at school and in the community. We try and support regular attendance for our students by providing a bus service for students in the early years.

This year we have entered a partnership with GRAMS, the Geraldton Regional Aboriginal Medical Service) and they provide a doctor's clinic once a week at the school. We are working with the EON foundation to create a community food garden at the school. Our students tend to the vegetables and use the produce to prepare healthy meals as well as taking fresh produce home.

We inform our parents of what we are doing at the school by inviting them to events, have an open-door policy in the office, publish our school mazing twice a term and we encourage parents to engage with the SeeSaw app.
